Farmers are increasingly faced with the demand for input cost reduction, increasing yields and maintaining high levels of operational productivity and efficiencies while dealing with climate change and the need to protect the environment.
With mechanisation equipment one of the biggest contributors to input costs, proper planning and selection of equipment is essential to help ensure a profitable and sustainable farming operation.
To assist farmers in maximising production in the most cost-effective way, BHBW offers mechanisation planning and trusted advice to commercial and developing farming operations.
Mechanisation planning calculations are based on industry mechanisation planning guidelines, equipment manufacturer’s specifications, operation work rates, available production cycle days, cultivation methods and efficiency factors applied for weather, soil conditions, field sizes and locations, site conditions, crop production cycle activities and logistics.
A wide range of equipment (Massey Ferguson, Challenger and Fendt) allows our team to match machinery to individual customer needs, while high levels of parts backup and countrywide technicial support, operator training and service plans (a first in South African agriculture) help to improve productivity and reduce cost of ownership.
As part of our integrated solutions approach, we also offer the NEXT Farming Farm Information Management System and precision farming products with related hardware, software and professional services and support, providing farmers with digital farming solutions for data-based operational planning and decision-making.
